About Clayton Montessori Academy

Montessori Academy, established 2000, is Australia’s leading and largest Montessori early education group for children under the age of six.

Building on the pioneering principles established by Doctor Maria Montessori (1870-1952), Montessori Academy delivers a modern Montessori education program that is based on the natural development of the child. The goal of the Montessori program is to provide children with the knowledge and skills to thrive in their educational career as life long learners.

Montessori Academy encourages a strong focus on critical thinking, independence, language skills, mathematics, culture and practical life skills. The Montessori Curriculum is based on hands-on learning experiences that have been tailored to the Australian Government’s Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF).

Clayton Montessori Academy Reviews

  • I C - over 1 year ago

    We cannot give enough praise to this facility, educational program and the highly experienced and qualified staff. Our daughter attended another centre where she started picking up bad behaviours (being aggressive, tantrums, hitting etc.) not to mention was not learning anything, was very bored and cried everytime at drop off and pick up. She was always dirty, had dried snot and often underdressed if playing outside, even though I provided enough clothing. There was a high turnover in staff and a lack of communication between the educators. We were always told that this was the normal of childcare centres. Since we joined Montessori in April we have seen a drastic change in our daughter's behaviour. She is a calmer, happier child not to mention clean! From an educational perspective, she has learnt so much in such a short amount of time which translates to the great effort and work the educators put in everyday in delivering the Montessori program! The ladies are amazing, we have never seen educators who truly love what they do (being with kids all day isn't an easy job) but they always do it with a smile on their faces. There is no staff turnover at this place which means my children can build lasting relationships with their educators. We absolutely love their school mums, as we call them, and I am soooooo happy that we found your centre! Oh and now during drop offs and pick ups, my daughter walks herself in, no crying, even waves us goodbye and doesn't want to go home at the end of the day! Great work guys! 😘🏆🥇
